Naomi Davenport is head of programme and content at London Craft Week, a city-wide festival celebrating creativity and exceptional craftsmanship from around the world.
With 12 years of experience in the cultural sector spanning craft, design and contemporary art, Davenport is interested in the dialogue between these sectors, particularly the manner in which craft practices and design thinking together can drive radical solutions.
Through London Craft Week, Davenport champions independent makers, studios and brands who embrace the inherent sustainability of craftsmanship while exploring new applications of traditional practices and new approaches to material innovation.
Prior to joining London Craft Week, Naomi worked across India, Sri Lanka and Singapore, where she celebrated the depth of craft heritage in South Asia and Southeast Asia through a diverse range of international programming across an array of design disciplines.
Naomi is a graduate of the Courtauld Institute of Art.
